Unhappy I cant get wine to work


When I try to use wine to run starcraft (game) setup, I get the following error message:

shamus@host:~$ wine /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe
err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"winex11.drv": libXxf86dga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Application tries to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.

I don't know what this means. Any ideas?

Looks like you're missing libXxf86dga support -- if you're running Debian, try apt-get install libxxf86dga* or the equivalent under whichever distribution you're running.

Good luck,

mj

College linux seems to have been discontinued (Distrowatch.org seems to think so, the forum here not so sure). It's based on Slackware, so you could possibly try using their package mirrors -- eg. http://slackware.it/en/pb/searchfile...bXxf86dga&w=on. The libXxf86dga.so.1: seems to be included in X11-6.8.2 on Slackware, so it may potentially just be a matter of upgrading your X11 package.

Cheers,

Michael.

I updated my X11 package, but I still get the same error:

root@host:/home/shamus/Desktop# wine /mnt/cdrw0/install.exe

Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.

How do I know if my X server is running?
How do I know whether $DISPLAY is set correctly?
I'm so lost.

Log in as user and start wine as user not root. If you are logged in as user and you want to run something as root it means root can`t connect current X session. If you have gnome or KDE running, X server is running.
Anyway log in as user, start terminal and as user give command
wine /mnt/cdrw0/install.exe
and see if it works

well i am not sure if it would work for you!

I have just started using wine [a couple of hours back]
and faced no problems
have tried putty.exe
and xlite.exe successfully
and hav plans to try more as soon as i get chance.

just did

#winecfg
#winefile

and that all.

It is great to get something working under wine but I do wonder why you installed PuTTY. It is a windows program that uses ssh which is in every Linux I have ever seen.

Instead of using PuTTY under wine just enter a command something like this:

ssh username@192.168.1.2

Yet another reason for not running PuTTY under wine.

At the moment I am trying to work out why anyone would need it for *nix. I suppose it can remember login details which could be useful if you have lots of different usernames and different accounts.
